Artak Medjbarian, 33, of Sherman Oaks, Calif, pleaded guilty to plotting with others to steal $163,000 of meat from Nebraska Beef by impersonating a transport authority from a legitimate company.
Medjbarian and fellow conspirers imitated a freight hauling company in order to receive a shipment of meat from Nebraska Beef. From there, the plan was to escape with the stolen beef. However, workers at Nebraska Beef in Omaha questioned the authenticity of Medjbarian’s documents, leading to his arrest.
He will not receive a sentence until October.
